Muscat Squash 'Muscat de Provence'


Muskaatpompoen Muscat de Provence

Muscat de Provence has medium sized, flat round fruits with deep ribs. The skin is green at first, after ripening the fruits colour to (light) orange. The pulp is beautifully orange and can be used in soups or pastries. After sowing, do not give the seeds too much water and make sure the soil is well fertilized. Sowing is done preferably at a soil temperature of >20oC. To prevent mice from eating the seeds, it is recommended to put a pot upside down over the seeds. Remove the pot after a week. Pay attention, mice are really fond of pumpkin seeds. It is important to harvest the pumpkins before temperatures drop below 0oC, when the leaves are withered and the stem is dry. The pumpkins will be preserved best when surroundings are dry and not too cold.
